Can OCR Help?
OCR can automatically make large quantities of
information text-searchable. The OCR software can
quickly process entire documents, recognizing the
shapes of individual letters and numbers. After
the document has been processed, the information
about the content of the file is stored in the computer,
allowing you to easily find the passages of text
that you need, or to copy and paste information.
Convert Images to Text?
You may sometimes find yourself with an image
file that is not merely an image. Some image files
are actually scanned documents containing text that
is not recognized by the computer. As long as the
file is in image format, it is impossible to work
with the text. As a result, it is extremely important
to make the documents text-searchable and editable,
so that you can work with the text like in any other,
